I would like to hear from anyone that owns property in Nye, or the surrounding area. Good or bad.

I bought a pack from a native there a couple years ago. Asked him about the area. He was a little bitter, due to Californians buying land, building big mansions and driving values up to where long-time natives could no longer afford the tax rates to live there. Like a lot of Montanans. He also said some areas were impossible to get a good well. Anecdotal info, I know, but it is what it is.

I agree! After going out there a few times, looking at the houses, I felt that the area was above my budget. I'd really like to get something out that way but, I don't have the money to spend like the people from the West Coast.

Yeah. I love that area. Been looking at it since I was a teenager, and find out I can't live there as an adult because of a real estate bubble in another state. Just my luck...

Ummm, you can buy a lot in Nye for $7k. The biggest problem, is the gigantic mine just down the road, with all the heavy traffic. I heard about the landowners in the area trying to shut it down?? I don't know where that's at, and the mine was in trouble financially this year. But may reopen.

I always thought for some reason, that the people who worked in the mines, lived in a lot of the houses there. I guess that's not true. Oh well. Maybe things will change in the future.

They might, I have no idea, I just know about real estate, and what I read up on in the news. But yea, you can get a tiny lot in Nye for like $7k, so I don't know where these people are getting their info from.

So far I would venture to guess that the above contributors to this thread have no idea what they are talking about, and just saw an opportunity to blame California for something. I'm not from California, and I'm going to tell you right now that most of my clients are from Portland, OR, Boulder, CO, and all over Washington. Californians move to Missoula, handfuls to Bozeman. Why would someone from California move to Nye, MT?! Anyone with average intelligence will see a lot priced at $7K and start to wonder what is wrong with it.

Are there million dollar homes in the area? Of course, but they are mostly owned by family trusts, or independent companies and used as lodges for vacation. They make big bucks doing this.
